We're turning 7 years old today! 🎂
From a no-signup publishing platform to a home for 350,000 writers, we've continued evolving since 2015.
Here's where we are today, and a little review of the past year 🧵
In the last year, we made a ton of improvements to the platform ✨
We added a new editor that makes it easy to write without Markdown, added better support for newsletter writers, and launched experiments like http://tiny.write.as.
In that time, the number of blogs and posts on our platform also doubled! Here's where we were on our 6th birthday: https://write.as/q04sqbcdqmeolq1n.md
Today, we host:
360,000 blogs 🌐 3 million posts 📝 with 1 BILLION views 😵 across them all (passed this mark last night!)
We see over 3,000 new posts and more than 4 million views every single day!
As we anticipated on our 6th birthday, we became profitable this year! That means we're decidedly here for the long-run.
Thanks to all of our customers, we can keep the lights on for decades to come, without resorting to outside funding.
A special thanks also goes to our 5-year customers! It means the world to have your support and confidence in what we're building.
As we did last year, we'd like to make this long-term plan accessible to more people.
So we're again offering our 5-year plan at a 25% discount for the next week. https://write.as/5years
Besides giving you a worry-free, permanent place for your words on the web, this is a great way to support all the work we're doing.
